The Women's Microlight jacket is a lightweight down jacket that really lives up to it's name. The 120g of European goose down fill easily compresses within the lightweight outer fabric and the whole jacket fits easily into it's own chest pocket. There's no excuses for not taking this versatile jacket everywhere with you - safe in the knowledge that you have a very warm layer when you need it. The Microlight manages to combine form and function with a women's specific fit that maximises warmth to weight and ensures a great fit without the 'bagginess' often associated with technical light weight clothing.

In 1981, British mountaineer Robert “Rab” Carrington started making down jackets and sleeping bags in Sheffield, England. Inspired by the new style of lightweight alpine climbing which he helped pioneer, Rab made it his mission to make equipment that would withstand “the most extreme conditions in the world.”
Rab’s product line has expanded dramatically since then, but Rab’s commitment to functionality, durability, and value remains as strong as ever. At GearX.com, we are continually impressed by Rab’s superb knowledge of technical fabrics (they were the originators of Pertex) and attention to small yet crucial details like high-quality zippers. No matter which Rab product you choose, you can be sure that it will be a faithful companion in the mountains.
